This is a rendition of a playbill Alphonse Mucha had done in 1903. While his model held a crown of thorns it didn’t seem appropriate for Amy-lee Foley. I drew this around Valentines Day although the hearts were already apart of the original piece, I did add the woven ball because I like it and it symbolizes how we are all suppose to act towards one another. If we treat each other the way we would like to be treated, it keeps coming back. In it of itself the act becomes woven and cyclical. The original model had long strands of beads; Ms. Lee seemingly required more than that.
This was drawn on 12×12 cream colored cardstock with red, bright red, and dark red gel pens along with medium and fine tipped black ink pens.
